Old (netbios) domain visible after domain rename

Here's the situation:
We had an active directory (W3K) integrated domain named "abc.com" , netbios network name "def"
We have  renamed our domain, following the procedure outlined biy Microsoft ("Step-by-step Guide to implementing Domain Rename")
Our domain name is now "klm.com", netbios name is "klm".
 When users go to network locations/all networks/microsoft network they see both netbios names listed, and both lists show the same pc's/servers and they can access shared resources via both trees

How can I get rid of the old netbios network display?????

--added comment--
If I click on the old netbios name on a domain controller, I'm getting an error ("def is not accessible"). But I consider this as being normal: we have two machines that are in a "def" workgroup (not "def"-domain!). This could explain the presence of "def" in the network list

I just added a new machine on the network, and even that machine announces itself in th old netbios network list.
So must be something on the DC's then I think???

Through another channel I've got a suggestion to veriefy what system acted as the master browser for the old domainame (resource kit browstat utility).

One of our servers must have had a problem during the domain rename procedure: although it showed up as being connected to the new domain, it was still connected to the old netbios name.

The machine worked perfectly fine, but also acted as master browser for the old domain name. Because the SIDs of al machines stay the same in the rename procedure, the server couldn't tell the difference between the old and the new domain names....

After deteching the server from the new domain, rebooting, and joining again the domain, all problems where fixed.
